Praise for the Light

I want to thank God because I walk in the light and not in darkness as others do. Yeah, I know. Sounds arrogant, doesn't it?

But that's what the Bible tells us...that when we abide in the word, we know the truth and the truth sets us free. It tells us that we are not in darkness. So what exactly do we know.

Well, other glorious things aside, the one thing we Christians truly know is the love of God. So many religions in the world focus on the goodness of God. And yes, God is good. But how many adherents of those religions actually understand God as a loving father who cares for us even when we sin?

This is a great light. A light to lighten the gentiles and the glory of God's people Israel. In the old and new testaments, the love of God is a light that strengthens folks like Gideon, David, and Hagar.

And it strengthens me. Where I walk, I know a loving God loves, cares for, empowers, and guides me. Praise ye the Lord
